'Fringe' - 'White Tulip' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 16th 2010 2:58AM
Fringe: White Tulip(S02E18) "Until I took my son from the other side, I had never believed in God. But it occurred to me that my actions had betrayed Him, and that everything that happened to me since then was God punishing me. So now I'm looking for a sign of forgiveness, a specific one, a white tulip ... If God can forgive me for my acts, maybe it's in the realm of possibility that my son will be able to forgive me." - Walter Bishop to Alistair Peck

First of all, how cool was it to see John Noble and Peter Weller hobnobbing on screen together? Just two old scientists exchanging time travel theories and comparing notes on saving/stealing loved ones.

It was the perfect vehicle to build on Walter's struggle about whether to tell Peter or not. In a sense, he'd already been through what Alistair was contemplating. Yes, Walter had crossed to another universe while Alistair was trying to jump back in time, but the result was the same -- be with the person you'd lost. Anyone who's lost a loved one can relate. There's nothing you wouldn't do to be with that person again, even if it means jeopardizing others in the process.

President Logan(S05E21) Shock and Awe was a marketing slogan that our American military had come up with to describe a bombing salvo that would be unleashed in Iraq a few years ago. As it turns out, it could have been a descriptor for what would go down during the 3am-4am hour on this week's 24.

In a season that's been well-known for killing off longtime characters on the show, with Edgar, Tony, Michelle, President Palmer, Secretary Heller, oh, wait, we got an update there. As many readers and commenters here have stated, there was definitely the chance that Heller survived his car's plummeting off a cliff, something I wasn't so sure could have happened. Turns out, I either overestimated the abilities of terrorists in a chase helicopter with night vision goggles, or underestimated the smarts of Heller to either dive from the vehicle as it dropped, or his ability to survive once it crashed into the waters below. Well, at least we *think* he's still alive, as no one has officially talked to him yet, we've just heard he was okay. No one's that underhanded to pull a stunt like that, right?

Jack Bauer(S05E17) Typically when an episode of 24 starts to look like a scene in the Grand Theft Auto video game series, that means the bad guys are just about to be nabbed - or at least shot to death - but that wasn't how this week's episode was meant to be. With Evelyn attempting to recover from her gunshot from the Henderson snafu, it's pretty clear that Jack and Wayne are going to have to act fast now that they're being slowed down by her injuries and the need to hide her somewhere, if they want to find the evidence as to who killed President Palmer. When 911 is called from the hotel room that Evelyn is in, you know that's not going to work out so well, and sure enough, Henderson is informed only minutes later of this happening, and shows up just in time to waste the paramedics on the scene.

Our seemingly solitary ally left over inside the President's ranch, Aaron Pierce, has now become suspicious of what is going on after hearing about the arrest warrant put up for Jack Bauer, as has the Vice President. With Mrs. Logan suddenly re-enamored with her husband, one would have to say that Aaron will probably be acting on his own unless he can come up with something really slick to get her involved in whatever it is going to take to get Logan out of office. With a ton of military plus whatever other police the government has after Jack and Wayne right now, someone's going to have to get mobilized in order to help from within, because shooting their way out is probably unlikely.
